dc.description.abstractIntroduction: At times, it may be difficult to differentiate early stage, low-grade adrenocortical carcinoma from benign adrenal adenoma. Clinical Picture: A 53-year-old lady underwent right adrenalectomy for a 4-cm adrenocortical tumour causing Cushing's syndrome. Histology revealed an adrenocortical adenoma. Sixteen years later, she presented with a 14-cm adrenal tumour, again on the right side. Treatment: She underwent surgical removal of the tumour. Histology confirmed adrenocortical carcinoma. Outcome: She died of metastatic disease 17 months later. Conclusions This case highlights the importance of long-term, systematic follow-up of patients treated for benign adrenal adenomas, especially if the tumour size exceed s 4 cm.
